Supplies of all paediatric epinephrine auto-injectors are currently available in volumes that are sufficient to meet normal United Kingdom demand. The Department does not hold information about the volume available in Wakefield. All patients who require an epinephrine (adrenaline) auto-injector should now be able to obtain a device from their pharmacy. The Department continues to work very closely with all the manufacturers of epinephrine auto-injectors and can confirm that the supply situation continues to improve.
